Tuxedo Junction Rescue is a no-kill rescue organization dedicated to providing tender care and permanent placement into loving homes for cats at risk for shelter euthanasia in Austin, Texas. We primarily rescue black and white (“tuxedo”) and black cats because of their historic difficulty in being placed through shelters. However, this focus does not preclude rescue of other cats in need.

Syrian Assistance is an independent, non-profit organization consisting of volunteers from different countries that has been set up to raise money for the basic humanitarian needs of those Syrians either displaced or in need because of the ongoing crisis.

Robert Renick Feuille Jr. never got to finish organizing an exhibit of his photographs for the Adair Margo Fine Art gallery in Downtown El Paso. He died of testicular cancer on May 29.

The website, NO SHAVE NOVEMBER: Fight for Feuille, and the Feuille Family Scholarship Fund were set up to chronicle his cancer struggle and pay for the Feuille children’s educations.
